Thursday's Stars

Brandon Lowe, 2B, Rays. Lowe's amazing season continues to get better. The then 23-year-old (he turned 24 today so happy birthday Brandon) hit his ninth home run in just 25 games with Triple-A Durham. Lowe went 3-for-4 with a double and a walk as well. Lowe now has 17 home runs altogether this season. He is hitting .308/.408/.575 between Durham and Double-A Montgomery.

Wander Franco, SS, Rays. As impressive as Lowe's day was, Franco's was even better. Franco went 3-for-4 with a pair of triples and a walk in the opener of yesterday's doubleheader. He then followed that up by hitting a home run as part of a 2-hit game in the nightcap. Franco is now hitting .371/.418/.629 overall with Rookie-level Princeton.

D.L. Hall, LHP, Orioles. Hall threw 5.2 hitless and scoreless innings yesterday as the athletic lefthander walked two and struck out seven. Reliever Alex Katz kept the no-hitter going though nine innings, but the game was tied so it went to extra innings where Delmarva lost the no-hitter and the game in the 10th.

Touki Toussaint, RHP, Braves. Toussaint made his Triple-A Gwinnett debut with few issues at all. He allowed one run with five hits allowed in 6.2 innings as he walked three and struck out five. Toussaint has long had a plus fastball and breaking ball, but it's taken years for him to gain the command and control to make it work. It's working now.

Kyle Tucker, OF, Astros. The Astros top position prospect went 2-for-5 with his 14th home run of the season.

Forrest Whitley, RHP, Astros. The Astros top pitching prospect left last night's game after two outs with an oblique injury.
